You have a computer with an operating system Mac OS X and a smartphone or tablet with an operating system Android (Samsung Galaxy, Huawei, HTC, LG, Xiaomi, Motorola, Nokia, Sony Xperia, OnePlus, etc ...)? Then for sure you will need an app that allows you to manage your Android device directly from the mac, so that you can transfer photos, videos and music from Android to Mac in a simple and fast way.
As you know, Mac and Android systems are certainly not very compatible with each other, but thanks to programs that can be installed on Mac it is possible to make the two systems communicate correctly so that you can do whatever you want. Among the best software "android manager per Mac"Definitely there TunesGO for Mac. It is a program initially created only to manage iOS devices (iPhone, iPad, iPod) but which now also fully supports all Android devices.

Great software. Thanks
question: I can import the videos from android to imac but ... I lose the creation date of the movie, so if I import the videos of the white week made in February in August, I find myself with the videos on the snow with the date of August! how is it possible?!!!
This is normal because in the process of transferring and saving the video on the Mac, the computer updates its date. But in the detailed information of the file, somewhere there will surely be the actual generation date of that file.
